Our Mission     

In December 2009, WEWAG and the USFWS agreed on the following mission for this effort.

"The development of wind power is an essential and growing component of the Nation's electricity supply. Wind power is a source of clean, renewable energy that emits no greenhouse gases, does not contribute to global warming, and is playing an increasing role in energy security. The wind industry and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service affirm their mutual support of the responsible development of wind energy through the development of this HCP. As participants in this HCP, we agree to work cooperatively, to exercise flexibility and ingenuity, and to devote the necessary resources to craft a scientifically and legally defensible HCP that provides a means for reasonable wind power development in the planning area, that will support the survival and recovery of the species covered in the HCP."
